History[edit]

In May 2008, the Elba Radio Company (Doug Holderfield, president) reached an agreement to sell WELB to Rhett S. Snellgrove for a reported sale price of $60,000.[3] The deal was approved by the FCC on June 13, 2008, and the transaction was consummated on July 1, 2008.[4] At the time of the sale, WELB was broadcasting a mixed format of classic country and Southern Gospel music. After the new owner took over, it changed to a full time Southern Gospel format.
